KWH 225i Hybrid Integrated

KWH 225i Hybrid Integrated

The KWH 225i represents the culmination of years of SS and tube preamp and amplifier design. Our preferred approach has always been that of a hybrid system. The KWI 200 SS integrated amp was a big success for us, offering excellent performance and integration. The KWH 225i takes things to the next level. We combined the solid state output stage of our Reference KWA 150SE amp with the controls and integration of the KWI 200 and a tube preamp stage. We then increased the power to 225W. The result is the KWH 225i. We think you’ll like it!

I have been one of the very first in France to get your new KWH225i. I received it 3 weeks ago from HIFI Link (Lyon), I need to tell You how much my Bowers&Wilkins 802D3 falled in love with it in a few minutes. The more important words are transparency, natural, no make up, Everything is precise and homogenic, every instruments are at the right place in a large and deep audio space scene but every instrument is a part of whole instrumentation arrangement. From Albarn(Damon) to Zappa (Frank), from Bach to Snarky Puppy, from Miles Davis to Mozart, everything is a new pure pleasure to listen to…and guess what…During this Covid19 period of sanitary restrictions, I have plenty of time to listen to my Vinyle collection through a fantastic audio HIFI system. Thanks to bring up that quality and that sound passion through your material. – F. Colas, France
